Secret life of water revealed

South East Water is giving its customers a unique opportunity to discover the secret life of water, from source to tap, with a behind the scenes tour of Arlington Water Treatment Works and Reservoir.

It is in all our interests to use water wisely, to save water, and to use water efficiently. Seeing how water is collected, stored and treated can surely only help us appreciate that cool glass of water we drink, the water that washes our clothes and our bodies.

Kevin Clark, speaking on behalf of South East Water, said: “When people turn on their tap, they can often be forgiven for giving little thought as to where the water has come from, and how it reaches their homes in the first place.

"We’re delighted to open the doors at one of our key water treatment works and reservoirs, and hope this open weekend will show people the journey that water takes from source to tap – and which delivers a final product of which we are immensely proud, and is among the highest quality tap water in the world.”

If you live close to Arlington Reservoir, in East Sussex, why not sign up for what will no doubt be a fascinating trip out. The facility will be open to the public on the weekend of November 17 and 18. Entry will be by ticket only. To reserve a place just ring 01732 375410.
